Check out Manny Pacquaio's Latest Appearance On Jimmy Kimmel Live!




Manny Pacquiao stopped by for another appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday night to hype his upcoming fight against undefeated Jr. Welterweight champion Tim “Desert Storm” Bradley. But Kimmel was more interested in a potential fight between Pacquaio and Floyd Mayweather Jr. going so far as to offer to mediate negotiations between both boxers in hopes of reaching an agreement.
 “What if I tell you that if I can get you and Floyd in a room on television, you could each have one representative, I could make this happen. I really feel like I could be the mediator. Would you agree to something like that?"
When Pacquiao answered "yes", Kimmel immediately invited Mayweather to visit the studio to hammer out a deal.
“Floyd you heard it, I invite you… we will hatch out an agreement and get this fight.”
But first Pacquiao will have to get by dangerous Jr. Welterweight champion Tim “Desert Storm” Bradley on June 9th in Las Vegas.

Chael Sonnen Granted a Therapeutic Use Exemption for Testosterone Ahead of UFC 148

NSAC officials voted unanimously on Monday to grant Chael Sonnen a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) for the use of testosterone ahead of  UFC 148, after Sonnen along with his manager and some kind of witch doctor, pleaded their case in front of the Nevada state athletic commission. Sonnen who according to a Commission medical adviser, probably suffers from secondary hypogonadism will be allowed to receive bi-weekly injections of synthetic testosterone leading up to his July rematch with Anderson Silva. But as a result Sonnen will be forced to under go increased testing, including testing on the day following the fight where he will still have to test within the commission limits for allowable testosterone levels in Nevada.

Here, Ben Fowlkes breaks down the utter hypocrisy in allowing testosterone while punishing Marijuana and why it's doing MMA no favors. 
Whether you believe Diaz legitimately has a marijuana-shaped loophole here -- or, for that matter, whether you believe that Sonnen legitimately has low testosterone -- it’s hard to look at these two rulings and call them helpful, let alone fair. If the sport isn’t harmed by allowing one athlete to artificially increase his levels of a powerful hormone, how is it harmed by allowing another to use one of the least harmful recreational drugs around? If one man’s history of deception can be easily explained by putting the blame entirely on someone else, then how severely can another man be punished for smoking first and asking permission second?

UFC 151: Jones vs. Henderson Promo by Nick the Face


ht:youtube.com/nicktheface2

Nick Diaz Suspended One Year and Fined 60K for the marijuana metabolites in his post UFC 143 drug test .

Diaz fought the law and the law won.

MMAfighting.com has the scoop:
Embattled UFC welterweight Nick Diaz has been suspended for one year by the Nevada state athletic commission on Monday for his post-UFC 143 drug test that came back positive for marijuana metabolites.In addition, Diaz will have to forfeit 30 purse of his $200,000 fight purse, a total of $60,000.
Pretty weak considering Nick's valid medical reason for using Marijuana, but you have to wonder how much of this sentence is just pay back for having the audacity to launch a vigorous defense.

Titty Bar Burn Out and a Suspended License result in a Towed Bentley for Bones Jones

By now you all know that Jon Jones was arrested for a DUI on Friday. What you may not know, is that it wasn't "Bones" first run in with the law. As according to the MMAcorner.com Jones had also been previously caught driving with a suspended license late last year.

From  Jon Jones November 2011 Police Report:
 "On 11/24/11 I observed a black Bentley turn Northbound on Jefferson NE from Westbound McCleod NE. The vehicle came around the corner sideways and tires squealing. The vehicle continued North at a high rate of speed and pulled into the Fantasy World parking lot. I conducted as traffic stop and contacted the driver, identified as Jonathan Jones. I ran Jones drivers license through MVD and it was suspended. I then ran his drivers license through NCIC and they confirmed his it was suspended. Jones was cited for loss of traction and suspended drivers license. Jones vehicle was towed from the scene."
The fact that Jones was headed to an Albuquerque titty bar was taken into consideration and the charges were dismissed on March 8th, 2012.

Now, in Jones defense the Fantasy World fully nude club looks like a good time, but that's no excuse for drunk driving (in another state). Which I'm sure the Broome County, New York Sheriff's Department will show Mr.Jones soon enough, especially with out the titty bar consideration to fall back on.

But, you know what the sickest thing about this whole mess is? It might just end up being the best thing that ever happened to him.

Jones is lucky A: that he didn't kill himself and a school bus full of nocturnal school children and that B: He found time in between praying for Rashad and being the best Jon Jones he could be, to crash his $190,000 Bentley into a poll. If anything, hopefully it accomplishes a few positive things. 

First, hopefully the bitter pill that is a good ol' fashion public shaming humbles Jones, even if it's just a little bit and gets him focused on being the greatest of all time. 

Second for better or worse, hopefully (for him), this kind of incident makes him more relatable to the general public. Right now, to most people Jon Jones might as well be a space alien between his other worldly exhibitions of martial combat and sickeningly humble reactions afterwards people just don't get him. But, now with a little bit of dirt on him, hopefully everyone (Jones included) can realize that nobodies perfect.

Manny Gamburyan Vs. Michihiro Omigawa booked for the UFC On Fox 4 card.

Manny Gamburyan and Michihiro Omigawa will probably be fighting for their jobs at the UFC on Fox 4 in August. As Michihiro Omigawa has gone 1 and 3 in his last 4, while Manny Gamburyan has lost 3 in a row. Which should add an extra element of drama to this featherweight scrap.
